As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date.

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

Ingredients

(Maintenance Dose = )
Ingredient Per Serving Per Pound

Instructions

Instructions for Use:
How to Use Your ThinLine:

ThinLine recommends that any basic ThinLine or Ultra ThinLine pads be used between your saddle and a regular saddle pad. While you can use ThinLine pads
 
directly on the horses back the lifespan of the pad may be shortened. When used over another pad the average lifespan is 7-9 years. Pads used directly against the horse are not warrantied. Some ThinLine or Ultra ThinLine pads may come with a crease where the pad has been folded to be bagged and shipped. These creases will disappear when warmed to body temperature. (1-2 rides)
 
Combo or full pads, like the Cotton Comfort, Sheepksin, or Felt pad lines, may be used alone.

Care Instructions for Sheepskin Pads:

ThinLine sheepskin products are made with 100% medical grade merino wool on a real (non-synthetic) hide. Please follow care instructions carefully to ensure you product stays under warranty and to ensure product durablity.
 
For Regular Maintenance – The most important thing to know about sheepskin is that it hates to stay wet. If you ride the sheepskin against the horse or get it thoroughly soaked make it is dried quickly. Place the pad sheepskin up in a cool environment. In humid climates use a fan to blow over the pad. Sheepskin must be allowed to dry fully between rides. Once the pad is dry, a light brushing of the sheepskin with a pet brush will separate the wool fibers and help to keep the wool fluffy and resilient for the next ride. Ride, flip sheepskin side up in your tack room, brush occasionally. A simple daily/post-ride brushing is all your pad needs if not too sweaty from the ride.
 
Washing Sheepskin—Pads should only be washed when absolutely necessary, which should only be about 2-3 times in it’s lifespan if the above maintenance care is followed. Sheepskin saddle pads are best washed by hand in cold water using one of the following 3 approved products: Eucalan, Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Shampoo, or Ivory Snow Flakes.  These products have been tested on sheepskin and are covered under warranty.  You may machine wash (although hand wash is preferred) in a front loader, no agitators against the pad, single wash cycle only. Remove excess water in the pad by carefully squeezing the water out or placing in your washing machine on the spin cycle.
 
Drying Sheepskin— Sheepskin saddle pads should be laid flat, sheepskin up, out of the sun preferably under a fan. No dryers or other heating devices. The ThinLine shim may slow drying time so placing absorbent products such as heavy duty paper towels or shami’s such as sham wow inside the pocket will absorb water, speed the drying time and keep your sheepskin in better shape. Don’t over stuff pockets or the sheepskin may stretch. Do not brush or pull sheepskin when wet.
 
To keep the rolls clean and extend washing cycles, especially on white pads, you can lightly spray Scotch Guard the rolls.

Sizing

Medium- Fits most saddles up to 17.5". Measures 19" wide between the rolls, and 23.5" long including the rolls. 

Large- Fits most saddles larger than 17.5".  Measures 20.5" wide between the rolls, and 25" long including the rolls.

    ThinLine Sheepskin Comfort Half Pad is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 82.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pad! I bought this a month or so ago and have used it on 2 different horses with great results. My OTTB was more pleasant under saddle and my QH/TB cross showed jumpers in it with great results. I placed the shims for the QH/TB mare as she is older with high withers. Would definitely purchase again!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great pad, needs more color options!! Love this pad. I have had it for years, I would LOVE if it came in brown...white is so hard to keep clean and the black color sticks out too much.
    Date published: 2016-09-17
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not that durable I bought mine about two years ago. I wish the thin line material fit the shape of the quilted portion better, it doesn't stay tucked up and tends to smush down on the withers of my wide backed horse. Seems fine on other horses. My issue with the pad is that the sheepskin is ripping. I own one horse that I ride 4-5 times a week so I haven't been very hard on it for the amount of damage it's showing.
    Date published: 2016-08-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable I really like this pad because it benefits both the horse and rider. It's very well made but it does run large. Definitely get the the medium- I have a 17" saddle and it about a solid inch too big. Regardless, it's well made with thick sheepskin and I do think it was a good purchase. Kinda hard to clean, which is annoying, but overall I recommend this is you want your horse to be nice and comfy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I typically ride 30-80 miles per week over some pretty extreme terrain, so my horse's saddle really has to fit to avoid him having a sore back. He has a hard to fit back, so I had a saddle custom made for him a few years ago. It has worked really well with just a 1/4 inch wool felt pad, but he just turned 20, and after a winter off from work (due to my injury), he has lost some muscling along his top line and just behind the withers and needed a little extra padding and shock absorption. The Ultra Thinline Comfort Sheepskin Pad was exactly what I needed. It fits perfectly under my endurance saddle. I have ridden him in it from 12 to 40 miles at a time since receiving it and he has continued to be comfortable. I added the front shims to help with his loss of muscle behind the withers and it was just the thing. I've seen several reviews complaining about how hard it is to install the shims, but it took less than 5 minutes to put in both sides. I just folded the shim in half and slid it into the pocket with my hand, then worked the edges into place a little at a time. Easy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Back Pad I originally ordered a Mattes Half Pad, but it was a bit too built up in the front and tilted my saddle back. I exchanged it for the ThinLine pad and it fits well-- no tipping. I like that it has the sheepskin roll in the front and back, unlike the Mattes which only has it in the front. My horse seemed happy and more willing to go forward and stretch with this pad. My sister has used this pad with her dressage saddle for years, and it's held up great.
    Date published: 2016-02-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality! Beautifully made, saddle is a 17" and medium fits nicely. Can't get over how nice the construction and materials are. Never paid this much for a pad but I think it was well worth it!
    Date published: 2016-02-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Protection~ I purchased this ThinLine pad about three weeks ago, and have really good results with my mare. My saddle fits her quite well, so I didn't want a pad that was going to fluff up to much. I needed a pad that created good contact between rider and horse, but also maintained the good fit. This pad does that. And it has absorbs impact quite well, which is why I purchased the pad. Very happy!
    Date published: 2015-11-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down, best half pad ever. I've been trying several different half pads trying to improve my saddle fit on my super narrow horse. Don't waste time like I did looking at other options, just get this pad. I got the 3/16" shims as well, they are made of the ThinLine material and made all the difference. With shims, it helped correct 95% of my fit issues: pommel and cantle not level, super uneven sweat pattern, tack always slipping forward. The short and sweet is to invest in this piece of tack; it's got real, excellent quality sheepskin, it's got the ThinLine, plus it's shimmable and the shims are ThinLine as well, not squashy foam. Oh, and the billet straps on it are actually long enough to go on the billets of my jumping saddle. I purchased the medium, it fits my 17 and 17.5 saddles very nicely. I use AP/jumping saddle pads and they are a hair shorter than this pad, so the sheepskin sticks over a little bit, but that's probably why Melp was invented. As far as durability and usable life goes, there is one of these in the stack of schooling tack at my barn, it gets used by lessoners all the time and it has probably been around awhile. The sheepskin is still fluffy, none of the stitching is coming out and when I used it to see if I'd like the pad, even shimless it helped saddle fit a ton. So take care of it and it will last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wouldn't ride my mare without this pad! I have a mare with a very sensitive back. She's had the vet/chiro etc. and her saddle fitter suggested this pad. I've had it for over 4 years, never washed it, and used it for every single ride. At first, I didn't think I would use it in competition because it is black, but there was such a remarkable difference the one time that I didn't use it that I wouldn't ever ride her without it again.
    Date published: 2015-07-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy!!!! this is one of the very best horse purchases I have ever made! My TBs back and withers were always sensitive after I rode him... The first time I used this pad I had the best ride ever on him...I am so so happy that I discovered this pad! My TB is too!!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality I really liked it but it was so thick that it did not look right under my saddle so I sent it back.
    Date published: 2015-05-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice pad A bit thick but best to be safe with a tight shorter backed horse. Do not order large if you have a 17.5 in saddle it will indeed be too long
    Date published: 2015-05-04
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from fell apart Like another reviewer, my pad fell apart. I am vigilant about caring for my tack. I did not wash it, always used with another pad, it wasn't dirty, stored in a climate controlled tack room, in its bag. Used probably less than 50 rides, though I had it for 2 years or more... the sheepskin pulled away from the pad and disintegrated. It was SO expensive And I love the thinline part, but I would not get another. For the price, it needs to last. This is ridiculous. For what it's worth, I think the horse liked it.
    Date published: 2015-04-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great half pad, runs large I've been using this for two years now, and it works great, and is holding up well. My horse is very happy with it. the only complaint is that it did run large. I have an 18" dressage saddle, purchased a large pad and there are several inches of extra pad.
    Date published: 2015-04-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference a good half pad makes Although I have only used this pad a total of 3 times I feel so passionately about how well it works that I thought I'd write a review. I have used an ogilvy memory foam jump pad under my Devoucoux Socoa for the past year. I noticed over time that my horse bites at the cross ties as I tack him up with the ogilvy. When I ride I also feel unbalanced and as if I am shifting off to one side. As I tacked up my gelding with the thinline I noticed him go to bit the cross tie before stopping when he realized something had changed. I immediately felt more centered in my saddle and closer to the horse, a feeling that I did not receive when using the ogilvy. I feel that this pad offers the best shock protection out of most of the others on the market. In terms of fit I have an 18" saddle and the medium was perfect for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely 100% worth the investment! I purchased a new Thinline pad for my horse to help create the perfect saddle fit. It is absolutely one of the best investments I ever made - he's comfortable and forward moving! The pad is super high quality too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I expected. Bought this pad about two weeks ago for a birthday present to myself. I had been going back and forth on this pad and a few others. I'm very happy with my purchase and noticed a positive change immediately while riding my older mare who is usually tough to get softened up and moving out. I truely feel this pad has made the difference and given her more comfort while riding. I had heard different opinions I sizing but I bought the medium and it fra perfect under my 17" Prestige-Nona Garson.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this half pad for my sensitive mare. I liked being able to customize and shim for a perfect fit. Nice fleece and extra cushioning with the thin line padding.
    Date published: 2014-09-16
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty but doesn't last I ride two horses a day and am religious about using a baby pad. While I love the traditional look of the pad and the modern function, I have gone through 2 pads in a year and a half. The sheep skin litterally melts away and the fleece peels off the pad rendering it useless. I do not think it's a good buy and will not be getting another sheep skin product from Thinline, unfortuanately

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad, great value, runs big. I love this pad- it does what it advertises. I feel a closer contact with my pony and he feels more supple and more willing to bring his back up when I use this pad. My pony is hard to fit a saddle to because of his narrow build but flat back, and this pad keeps my saddle from sliding up on him. I have a similar Mattes sheepskin pad that was more expensive than my ThinLine. The Mattes looks beautiful but unfortunately does NOT help keep my saddle in place. I would choose the ThinLine over the Mattes again and again. My only critique is that this pad runs big. I have a 17.5" saddle and bought the Medium, and it's just slightly too big. Wish I would have gone with the Small, it would be a cleaner fit/look around the edge of my saddle. Oh well, it still works great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Pad I bought this pad to replace the same, very old, ThinLine Sheepskin Pad. The new one is working well, and based on experience, it'll last many years. I think it tends to run a little big. If you're not sure which size to get, try the medium first.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad for sore backs My Dutch Warmblood got a sore back because he needed his saddle re-fit. My poor baby was letting me know every time I tried to saddle him that he didn't want it on his back. After using the thin line sheepskin pad one time he stopped complaining about getting saddled and since the saddle has been fitted the soreness is slowly reducing. What more do you want from a pad?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this half pad! This pad is high quality and very well constructed. It is TTS (bought for my daughter - 16.5 in saddle. Would definitely fit up to 17 in saddle as well). My daughter likes that she can really feel her horse; definitely promotes close contact with the horse. Our gelding seems happy and comfortable as well (although we really didn't have issues before). Spendy but definitely worth it! I will be buying one to replace my older Mattes half pad for my own horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy I splurged! After years of having this half pad on my wish list I am so happy to have finally made the plunge and spent the money on this pad! This half pad is high quality and the the thin line technology is incredible! My OTTB has arthritis in this back and needs extra encouragement to stretch out and move while riding in the indoor arena during the winter months. I have seen an improvement in his movement using this half pad. I have also noticed my slight lower back pain I experienced during riding has completely gone away! I have a 17" saddle and I ordered a medium size pad (and it fits great). I am so happy to have made the investment both for my horses back and for mine. This pad was well worth the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Used this for the first time today and I loved it! It's high quality so I expect it will last for many years to come. My horse willingly stretched through his back and used his hind end. At first I was worried it was too thick and it would make me feel high off my horses back, but it really didn't. I ride multiple hard to fit thoroughbreds and I feel this half pad will improve their comfort making it we'll worth the price! The medium fit my 17.5 county dressage saddle perfectly!
